Dislodge Food Stuck Esophagus
Yesterday I swallowed chicken with little bone. Now I couldn't feel any symptom such as pain. Is there any specific symptom could I feel if got stucked in esophagus. I havea gastritis. Differnt sympto?
You would know it's stuck in your throat: If it was stuck in your throat, you would have pain in your throat, and it would feel like something's not going down completely. So that's good. The gastritis may or may not be related to that. Chances are higher if the bone was small enough, and it's in your food, and passes out of your body as stool, you should have no problem. If the gastritis continues however, you need to contact your pcp, and have this examined further. ...Read more
When your trying to heal your esophagus you shouldn't eat more acids? What if your taking meds and your still hurting is it becuz of the acidic food.
Correct: Eating or drinking acid things will make the esophageal irritation worse. It may take time for the meds to work. If you are very pregnant, you probably have reflux and should stay upright as much of the time as you can (even to sleep) and take an antacid whenever you hurt as well as at bedtime or if you wake up in the night. ...Read more

Small bites and gulp:
Agree with Dr. Pool. The pain may be due spasm of esophageal muscles. Try taking smaller bites of food and smaller gulps of liquids while drinking.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Blockage: It sounds like there is a blockage in your feeding tube or esophagus. The pain is from food getting stuck on the way to your stomach.
